Welcome to The Sutton Academy
Year 10 work with the Brilliant Club!
12 Year 10 students have been selected to work with The Brilliant Club. This is an award winning charity that exists to widen access to highly-selective universities for pupils from under-represented groups. By recruiting, training and placing doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in non-selective state schools across the country.
A launch night took place on Wednesday where students and parents/carers met with representatives from the Brilliant club and was introduced to their doctoral researcher who will help them complete a 2000 word essay to A-level standard. This will be followed by a launch trip to a top university to further develop links. Students will then begin working with their chosen researcher for the remaining 8 weeks of this academic year to write their essay and will finally graduate at a full ceremony at one of the top 30 universities in the country.
